Heavy words in a funny shell
7 August 2006 | by (finland) – See all my reviews

Kersti Bergroth - or Tet as it stands also in "Vuokrasulhanen" and "Morsian Yllättää" - wrote five original stories for Valentin Vaala in the early 40's. "Viikon Tyttö" remains the last and the most memorable of Tet's writings.

Another reason for the success of those five stories is definitely the charm and energy of Lea Joutseno who plays the leading actress in all of them. As a continuation to great acting performances in Viikon Tyttö we can also admire our "Finnish Cary Grant" Tauno Palo playing the dream of all poor women.

The movie itself is a wolf in a sheep's clothing. All along it bites deep into the strict class division and laughs very openly straight towards the faces of higher class people as they "admire anything that comes from the mouth of a millionaire" like Tauno Palo puts it in the end. Still it all happens with a bright blink in the eye and no one can even think of the film being the hardest critique ever made in those times.
